Mike Pompeo on China. Bringing swagger back.

Now, if we could just do something more about the persecution of Catholics and human rights abuses in China. But I have a feeling that this is also a concern in the present administration specifically in regard to China such that this will also arise more strongly in negotiations between these USA and China.

I’m not going to comment much on volleys of whatever kind between the Holy See and China in the last couple of years. A new friend, privy to that goes on with such things, enlightened me that there is much more going on behind the scenes, much much more.

But on a secular level, I’m so happy to see these USA speak frankly about some of the nefarious practices of China.

I even detect a bit of swagger, as was promised. That’s refreshing.

    What a great talk! When Pompeo spoke about the ChiCom’s recruitment of Chinese students in the U.S. to monitor other students (chilling), it reminded me of an anecdote you relayed about conversations at the Vatican about how some of the Chinese priests were suspected of actually spying for China and monitoring other Chinese priests.

    Re: “Reciprocity in all things.”

    I wonder if the deal Pope Francis has with China has any reciprocity, or if it is almost all one way. There is so much about this that do not know, that I don’t even know what I don’t know.
